Once again Sound Opinions has inspired me to play a set of songs, with their feature on Synth-Pop today. It reminded me that synth-pop was the music that got me into alternative radio in the first place. So I'll play you some Human League, The Normal, Gary Numan, Yaz, and more. Then more music for my buddy Tim who is starting his battle with cancer treatment. Hopefully I can cheer him up a little.
